Vegan BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich


BBQ Jackfruit

14oz can organic Jackfruit

1 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 tsp paprika

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/2 cup organic smoky maple bbq sauce

Spicy Slaw

1 cup purple cabbage

1 cup shredded carrots

1 tsp red wine vinegar

1 tbsp vegan mayo

1/2 jalapeno diced

1/2 tbsp maple syrup (or sweetener of choice)

Juice of 1 lime

Salt + pepper for taste

2-3 buns


Rinse, drain and dry the jackfruit. Cut off center core and discard.

In a mixing bowl, add your spices, then add jackfruit and toss.

Heat a medium skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tbsp of oil and add jackfruit. Cook for about 2-3 minutes.

Add bbq sauce and a splash of water to thin out a little, stir and reduce heat to medium-low, cover with a lid and cook for about 20 minutes to allow flavors to marry.

While the jackfruit cooks, add slaw ingredients to a mixing bowl, toss gently then refrigerate.

Once the jackfruit has a nice color and is tender, shred with a fork and begin to plate. Add a little bbq sauce to the bottom bun, a generous serving of jackfruit, then your slaw. Enjoy!
